What Makes Your Heart Happy

What a joyous challenge we have going on at the Round Robin Photo Challenge this week. "What Makes Your Heart Happy?"

Naturally there are many things that make my heart happy and I could fill the page with my fur babies, grand-babies, my children and last but certainly not least my husband.

However, I felt I should keep the entry down and decided on two photographs that simply warm my heart and makes me smile every time I look at them.

I apologize in advance for this first photo as it's a scanned copy. It was taken on a tripod with the timer and an old early digital camera.

This was taken about 5 years ago, I had my entire family home for Christmas. That in itself was a treat as my two son's are in the US Navy. We went outside for a family portrait which was supposed to include our dog Toby, he obviously had other plans!

The second photograph are my two beautiful granddaughters. Who are simply precious and bring much joy to this grandma.

I'm long overdue for a visit. This economy better pick up so I can go visit them before they graduate high school!

Please take a moment to check out all the other photographers who took the time to participate. You can find the linking list here -> Round Robin.

These are both great fun shots. I love the poses of the different family members in the first one, and their matching Santa hats. And the grandchildren are just adorable.

Love the Christmas shot. I do realize how special whole family shots are. Once you get one you keep it forever! And those girls are just precious. I can hear their laughter now.
